“Judgment Day at the 2015 Portland, Oregon Spring ANA”

By Frank Van Valen, Numismatist & Cataloger, U.S. Coins

I recently flew out to the ANA Mid-Winter National Money Show Convention, held this year in Portland, Oregon, on March 5, 6, and 7. I stayed with my daughter, Jenna, and her fiancé, Jason, in Vancouver, Washington, right across the Columbia River from Portland. I am an accredited ANA Exhibits Judge, and among other fun things, that’s what I did while in Portland.
